Young actor Raj Tarun made a mark for himself in movies like Uyyala Jampala and Kumari 21F, as a youth heartthrob. The actor has now come up with a new movie, Iddari Lokam Okate with a big banner, Sri Venkateswara Creations of Dil Raju. The movie is a romantic drama.
Cast: Raj Tarun, Shalini Pandey, Rohini
Direction: G R Krishna
Music: Mickey J. Meyer
Mahi (Raj Tarun) and Varsha (Shalini Pandey) are childhood classmates. They meet after 25 years of their living with their separate families. Both of them strike a relationship instantly and start liking each other. A love story begins which seems to be happy. Grief strikes the couple when Varsha knows Mahi is suffering from a serious health scare. Both of them are separated suddenly, by pangs of tragedy. What is this health problem? Did the couple get back to normalcy after knowing the disease? How did their love story develop after this problem? This forms the crux of Iddari Lokam Okate.
Iddari Lokam Okate is a movie, which solely rests on Shalini Pandey. She gets the lion’s share of screenspace in the movie and delivers it with aplomb. Her emotional scenes with Raj Tarun and other supporting cast, are highlights of the movie. It can be said this is her most powerful performance, after her classic Preeti role in Arjun Reddy.
Raj Tarun, as a man affected with a serious health complaint, appears more subdued in the movie. This movie is a fresh challenge for Raj Tarun, as most of the time he is not verbose and communicates through his eyes. The parts with his mother, played by veteran Rohini are moving.
Music by Mickey J Meyer is soothing and simple. The mood of the film needs to be sober and Mickey delivers it aplenty. Songs featured on the lead pair enhance the story line and take it forward. Kudos to director Krishna, as he knows how to place songs, to help the film’s story line.
Iddari Lokam Okate pays tribute to the unrequited love, of old school and makes one realise the importance of maintaining a relationship, despite many problems. This is a story which should be savoured and relished for times to come.
